The date has been set for the 2023 London Fabric Show.
Organised by the British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM), the B2B show will take place at ILEC, London on 28th February and 1st March.
The location was the setting for this year’s event, and the quality of enquiries from buyers, coupled with a significant increase in exhibitor number, means the BFM team is committing to its new location again in 2023.
Certainty over the date has also enabled the BFM to agree bookings for suppliers, with more than 70% already confirming their presence at the 2023 show. The floor space has been increased again.
The 2022 show drew in manufacturers and suppliers from Belgium, as well as Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Germany and the UK.
Sean Holt, MD of the BFM, says: “We were very pleased with the feedback from exhibitors and buyers and feel the new format really hit the mark. Buyers within the international furniture community, and the 40-plus exhibitors in attendance, welcomed the event’s new format.
“A +30% increase in exhibitors ensured the buyers were offered an unrivalled exhibition experience to source high-quality designs and innovative contemporary and traditional fabrics for upholstery, bed, and soft furnishings.
“We made it a hosted, invite-only show to enable exhibitors to showcase their products directly to a key, professional audience. We are committed to reinvesting in the show for the future and now look forward to delivering further growth, attracting more exhibitors and a wider audience of international buyers for the 2023 event with profits from the event being reinvested into the industry to develop and grow business and talent for the future.”
